Project Arts Centre presents Brian Duggan
Dates: 10 Jun - 13 Aug
Opening: Thu 9 Jun 6pm – 8pm
The story of Ryou-Un Maru is the story of tides and currents. This Japanese fishing boat was swept out to sea during the devastating Tōhoku Tsunami that followed the 9.0 magnitude earthquake off the coast of the country in 2011.
In its wake, the vessel floated unmanned and unnoticed through various territories and international waters for 391 days, until it was detected and sunk in American waters off the coast of Alaska.
Brian Duggan’s sculptural installation takes us to the heart of this story. He presents an installation which holds in its aura and representation the memory of disaster, the power of the earth’s shifting tectonic plates, the radioactive devastation unleashed in Fukushima, and the chilling realisation that nation-states and national borders are of little consequence in the face of tides, wind and air currents of the earth’s interconnected climate system.
